Australian Survivor star Khanh Ong has revealed a funny and “100% petty” act of revenge on four ex-boyfriends after he was cast on the Channel Ten reality show.
The new season of Australian Survivor: Blood vs Water began on Channel 10 two weeks ago. This season, Khanh Ong is competing alongside his sister, Amy Ong.
The Melbourne restaurateur and reality TV star took to TikTok to tell followers he asked Channel Ten to place his billboards promoting the show on a busy intersection for a very specific reason.
“So I asked the production company and also the network to put one billboard in this exact location and on this exact road,” he explained.
“The reason why that particular billboard being in this particular location – South Rd and Nepean Highway – is because this intersection is where four of my ex-boyfriends have to travel through every single day to and from work.”
In the TikTok, Khanh gave his followers a look at the billboard, which reads “Melbourne’s King Khanh” and promotes the show.
He continued, “Petty? 100 per cent. Am I the drama? Possibly. Am I the villain? You’re gonna have to wait and see.”

He told the Herald Sun that he went to extreme lengths to train for the show, learning survival skills and living off rations.
“Amy and I flew to Darwin to see a survival specialist who taught us how to make fire, how to find food, how to make shelter, what plants were edible and which ones weren’t, and what I could make rope and tools out of,” he said.
“If I put my mind to something, it is a 100 per cent effort. I am not half-a__ing around.
“I am doing Survivor and I would like to win, so I am giving myself the best chance to do so.”
